Chamonix Troika 2017

Chamonix Troika 2017

The Chamonix Troika has a deep ruby­mulberry colour on release, with scents that recall vanilla, sweet ripe cherries, blackberries and other spices. The wine is well structured; full, round and smooth on the palate with rich fruit and berry sensations, fine harmony and length of flavour.

ageing : Although impressive when young, it should reach a prime at 10­ - 15 years.

about the harvest: At harvesting grapes undergo both bunch ­selection as well as manual sortation of each berry.

in the cellar : Grapes are soft­ crushed and fermented in a selection of stainless steel, concrete and wood fermenters for 12­22 days on the skins, with frequent pumping of wine over the cap. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally during 18 months of maturation in 228ℓ French oak barrels, 45% of which are new oak. The batches are blended before bottling to capture the unique aspects of each variety and to enhance the complexity of the wine.
